The Charger GX. Ride the world with 1,000 watt-hours.
Dirt. Mud. Sand and dust. You are surely thinking right now: “Why me?” After all, you only wanted to go touring. But from the moment you head out into nature with your Charger GX, you actually develop an addiction to it. You feel its sportiness, and suddenly regular roads are passé for you. Forever. The gearshift, with its enormous ratio range, and the high-torque Bosch Performance CX motor were created to tame the wild side of nature and to scale even the steepest of mountains. But even when nature tries her worst, the Fat Tires will keep you from getting stuck or sinking into the mud. So ultimately, the day tour can keep going as far as the two 500 Wh batteries will take you. Which is a long way. It's great, then, that the suspension seatpost with its leather saddle makes the ride so enjoyable. So then you ride back into the world of the everyday and the city – and you can no longer imagine your life without mud.Model Selection

The Nevo. Ahead of its time.
Low step-through? Doesn't sound particularly sporty, does it? But with the Nevo, you’d be surprised. The striking silhouette, expansive frame profile and hard edges promise sportiness and determination. The positioning of the battery on the front of the lower tube makes the design redolent of a motorbike. In functional terms, this means a central arrangement of the center of gravity, which produces neutral, safe handling in all riding situations. A touring bike with a comfortable step-through and at the same time exceptionally sporty qualities - the Nevo isn’t just the newest kid on the Riese & Muller block, it's also an E-Bike of the future generation.Model Selection
